Technology Demonstration

Modular Syngas Plant. LMG prepared process information and air emission documentation to successfully obtain an agency exemption from new construction air permitting requirements for the technology demonstration of a modular syngas plant. The plant uses patented gassification and wet scrubber gas clean-up technology to produce syngas from petcoke or biomass. The syngas is then burned in existing boilers located at the adjacent physical plant for a major university.

As part of the project, LMG conducted extensive research and evaluated existing plant data to determine emission factors for various air pollutants. We then used this information to estimate syngas production and combustion emissions. These emission estimates were then evaluated with existing natural gas and coal-fired boiler air pollutant emissions to demonstrate net emission reductions in a number of criteria pollutants and HAPs. This information was then compiled to clearly demonstrate that firing syngas in the boilers did not require modification of the air permits for these emission units.
